As Spring progressed it became all about the rhododendrons. Pinks and lilacs and deep reds, they bloomed all over the garden.
We have five large, mature rhododendrons to the front of the house, and they greet us as we come up the driveway. There are smaller plants dotted around in the back garden, or the wilderness as it is currently known!
For about a week I didn’t take photos of much other than rhododendron flowers, catching them at different times of day and in different lights and weather; from buds through to full flower. Sometimes they almost seemed to glow, while at others they were quite muted.
Always so pretty though!
They are starting to fade now, and I will miss the colour. But, I am looking forward to seeing what comes next. We are almost hitting our first anniversary in the house, so we should start to see some familiar plants soon…
Although, I do wonder what effect all the landscaping work we had done to the back of the house will have had.
We shall see!
